BIOL 47800 Introduction to Bioinformatics

Session Offered:

Fall Credit 3.0

Prerequisites:

BIOL 23000 or 23100 or 27000 and 24100 or 28000 and CS 18000 or 17700 or 15800 or 15900

Description:

The unveiling of the map of the human genome signals the dawning of the post-genomics age. New technologies and information are rapidly converging to change the way we do science and the way science will impact our culture. Some of these developments include the sequencing of the chromosomal content in an entire organism, high through-put strategies to identify genes whose patterns of expression change in response to the needs of the organism, and advances in the visualization of the structures of the proteins that are encoded by the genes.The course will focus on genome analysis and microarray strategies, and will include a presentation of the context of bioinformatics, the methods of data acquisition, the strategies by which the data are analyzed including the use of appropriate analysis software, and the ways the data are interpreted.
